Ninja are Japanese spy warriors involved in tactics, espionage, sabotage and military strategy. They appeared in the samurai era of Japan (XII-XIX centuries). The ninja were forced to hide in the shadows, so they used the methods of stealth and disguise to carry out their tasks. They also had the knowledge of martial arts, especially jujitsu and ninjutsu, to go unnoticed and fight their opponents.
The ninja used a wide variety of weapons, including the katana, nunchaku, shuriken, bo, kusarigama, war fan, and many more. Their clothing consisted of a black or gray suit, which made it easier for them to hide in the shadows. They also used masks to hide their faces.
Ninjas are often featured in movies and television shows. Some of the most famous ninja projects are Naruto, Mortal Kombat, American Ninja and so on.
